I wasn't kidding... lol... check out the color on these shark shoes. Not mine, again.

I've sometimes wondered if you could get that look with almost any pair of shark shoes by just going over them with acetone to remove the dye from the raised parts.

Maybe a rainy day project if I get a pair of sharks that I wouldn't mind experimenting on.

Any 9.5Bs in the house? This is an astounding pair of shell shoes. Check em out even if not your size. Not my auction.

I can imagine that after @CWOyaji 's offer of $2.99 accepted he'll stretch them to his preferred 13D

This captures my feelings perfectly. Don't get me wrong, I'm guilty of doing the same. A lot. And the brotherhood always reminds me the futility of even considering it.

I make similar proclamations to myself all the time. And then... a pair of beauties comes up for sale and I realize I’m not even close to being done.

Gents,
The mystery AE Saratoga loafers that were the subject of discussion over the weekend have landed. A thanks to @vestbash for reaching out to chat about this pair of shoes. It's fair to say that we each concluded that they were probably not shell but that there were enough oddities about this pair that it was difficult to be certain one way or the other.

I am happy to report....

Man those are buttugly.
I actually don't think they are butt ugly. But I do think there is no chance I would wear them. That said, even black shark seemed to be too much for my personal taste. It's a unique look for shark. I've never seen another pair quite like 'em.

So these were therefore an MTO, or something, where they just reused the style number. I think @smfdoc has a pair of MTO shark Chester’s where they did the same thing.

That’s pretty awesome that they were shell!

Yes! I’m very happy for you. That’s great! 🎉🎊🍾🥳🍻🎈🥂🪅

Weird that they don’t have the combo heel [EDIT: dovetail herl] that AE shell usually has, even back then. I have an oddly large sense of pride that I called it right. You guys get it though. Wear those in good health!

Yaaasssss!!!!! Congratulations. That’s really awesome. Experience hits another home run.

I too never had doubt… big cough (unlike @wasmisterfu)… who said that? 😈
